Marley Ridge is a 21 year old midfielder who bursted on the scene as part of the Hawks academy at South Downs College.
After impressing for the academy and then the first team he signed his first contract in 2015. Ridge has since had loan spells with the likes of Winchester City, Petersfield Town and Moneyfields to get minutes in first team football whilst also playing for the Hawks in local cup competitions.
Ridge was recalled by Moneyfields and returned to the Hawks in January 2018.
After a subsequent loan spell with Bognor Regis Town at the start of the 2018/19 season, Hawks boss Lee Bradbury recalled Marley and handed him his first league start for the Hawks in the 1-1 draw with Ebbsfleet United and was given Man of the Match for his performance.
He finished the 2018/19 season on loan at Hartley Wintney where he became a standout performer before signing on at the Hawks.
